WRHA’s Heidi Graham to talk patient safety, critical incidents & the media at January luncheon

Speaker: Heidi Graham, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority Director of Media Relations
Topic: Healthcare media relations

A patient a day. That’s how often it is estimated that someone dies in a Winnipeg hospital following an adverse event. Other patients suffer serious side effects when inadvertently given the wrong medication.

Are these medical mix-ups or the failings of our healthcare providers? Will someone be fired, or not? And how do you communicate these issues to patients, family, the public, media and internal audiences?

Learn how Heidi Graham, one of Winnipeg’s most prominent healthcare media relations professionals, handles the above at the January 18th CPRS Manitoba luncheon.

Heidi Graham is an award-winning journalist with more than 20 years experience in print, radio and television. Today, Heidi is Director of Media Relations for the Winnipeg Health Region, where her primary work is fulfilling media inquiries and strategy development.
